A fight near the Danbury City Center green has led to weapons charges for a 36-year old City resident. Police saw Jose Manuel Abreu get out of his car and approach another man early last Saturday morning, getting into a verbal argument off Railroad Place. Abreu walked back to his vehicle and got something out of it.
Police say officers heard the sound of the slide action of a pistol and intervened. Abreu was found in possession of a loaded pistol and brass knuckles.
Spokesman Lt Mark Williams told the Newstimes that it appears
Abreu was in a jealous rage. Abreu was charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, illegal possession of a weapon in a vehicle, breach of peace and 2 counts of threatening. He will be arraigned on Wednesday.
